Alfred Hitchcock's "The Ring" (1927)
Thursday, November 29, at 7:30 p.m.
Samuel Goldwyn Theater
8949 Wilshire Boulevard, Beverly Hills

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will present the U.S. premiere of Alfred Hitchcock's silent feature "The Ring," restored by the British Film Institute National Archive in association with STUDIOCANAL. "The Ring" is Hitchcock's only original screenplay, although he worked extensively with other writers throughout his career. This restoration of Hitchcock's sixth film as a director premiered at Cannes this year and played at the London 2012 Festival, 12 weeks of events programmed to celebrate the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. It is part of the BFI's larger restoration project "Rescue the Hitchcock 9," a major campaign to restore all nine surviving silent films by the legendary director. The Academy screening will be from a digital cinema package (DCP) and features a newly composed and performed score by British jazz and hip hop musician Soweto Kinch and the Soweto Kinch Septet.

"The Ring" is a love triangle melodrama set in the world of boxing, a milieu that fascinated Hitchcock. The title of the film refers not just to the boxing ring, but to the wedding ring that unites up-and-coming contender Jack "One Round" Sander (Carl Brisson) and his girlfriend Mabel (Lilian Hall Davis), and to the threat to their relationship symbolized by an arm bracelet given to Mabel by a rival boxer.
